One cannot turn on the television today without hearing about shooting deaths and name-calling ads or events by the presidential candidates and their staff members.

As much as parents and grandparents try to shelter children from this negativity, I’m convinced the young ones still hear some of what is said on television or the Internet, even if they are in the other room playing.
